Tarte For The Love Of Lipgloss 15 Piece Maracuja Lipgloss Collector’s Set Review & Swatches

This was provided to me by a brand for review but all opinions expressed are my own

Tarte has launched their traditional For the Love of Lipgloss 15 Piece Maracuja Lipgloss Collector’s Set for Holiday 2012. This is a fantastic gloss set because for $32 it gets you not one, not two, but three gifts in one.

It’s particularly friendly if you want individually packaged stocking stuffers or small gifts for distant beauty lover friends for around $10 bucks each or so.

Tarte packages a set of five glosses into a festive little box with a to and from ticket on the box ready for gifting with this set. Or if you’re feeling generous gift all three boxes of the glosses to your bestest friend.

Take a look!

Hard Candy The Perfect Cover Up Skin Clarifying Concealer Review & Swatches

This was provided to me by a brand for review but all opinions expressed are my own

You knew I’d be all over Hard Candy Skin Clarifying Concealer didn’t you? Being a concealer junkie, the two newly launched concealers from Hard Candy were high on my list of “must try dat soon”!

Let’s take a look!

Maybelline Volum’ Express The Colossal Cat Eyes Mascara Review

Maybelline released Volum’ Express The Colossal Cat Eyes Mascara here in the US finally. It’s actually an old formula for Asia and I believe the UK also has it (don’t quote me on the Europe release) but just recently launched on our side of the pond.

I don’t have a ton of beef with the Colossal formula. It’s served me well but it’s also disappointed me with releases like Mega Plush which is an uneventful drugstore mascara.

Maybelline Volum’ Express The Colossal Cat Eyes Mascara is something I knew I wouldn’t like but I wanted to review anyway and even try for that matter. You never know, it could prove amazing right?

No such luck!

Philosophy Toasty Cabin Fall 2012 Review

This was provided to me by a brand for review but all opinions expressed are my own

Let’s rent a cozy cabin in the woods and sip on Pumpkin Spice Lattes while it snows outside and we exchange stories about our latest beauty hauls inside.

Ok, maybe when I think cabin in the woods those things don’t exactly come to mind. It’s more along the lines of I find the Naturan Demant, evil demons stalk me, and Bruce Campbell circa 1981 swoops in, saves my life, and THAN we sip on Pumpkin Spice Lattes together.

I like that version better you?

Maybe it’s not your thing though?

How about a Philosophy Toasty Cabin for the safe folks?
